guifa thowe: basically, monkey typing allows you to `augment` classes 00:57
all of the MONKEY pragmas let you monkey around (get it?) with stuff that you should think twice about, generally because there be dragons 00:59
MONKEY-SEE-NO-EVAL (see no evil hardy har har) allows the use of EVAL on potentially unsafe strings.
MONKEY-GUTS allows you to use NQP operations, which are technically not part of Raku, just Rakudo, so that could shouldn't be assumed portable or stable. 01:00
MONKEY-TYPING lets you `augment` (and down the road, `supersede`) classes. That has global effect, so you could potentially really muck with things if you augmented, say, a core Raku class and didn't handle it carefully. 01:01

stevied i'm having trouble figuring out how to pass an array literal to a function 04:27
tried `apps < /Applications /Users/stevedondley/workshop/raku >;` 04:28
and apps `[ 'blah', 'blah2' ];`
neither worked
ok, it was working. I was using push to add an arrary to another array when I should have been using append 04:42

if I have a module on github and I push a new version to it and I'm on the p6c ecosystem, will the change be automatically picked up or do I also need to push with fez? 15:16
lizmat if your module is also in fez, then I would advise to just push to fez, and drop the module from the p6c ecosystem 15:18
if it is not in fez, then you don't need to do anything
(except maybe migrate to fez at your convenience :-) 15:19
gfldex @stevied#8273 The ecosystem does not have a notion of versions, unless you do actual github releases. Even then, zef will only know about the latest release. fez at the other hand build a repo of tarballs so one can request an older version to be installed. 16:04
lizmat stevied: when you say: "push a new version", did you update the "version" in the META6.json ? 16:08

mcmillhj How can I overload stringification for a custom class? Is there a docs section on this? 16:15
lizmat m: class Foo { method Str() { "bar" } }: say Foo.Str
camelia ===SORRY!=== Error while compiling <tmp>
at <tmp>:1
------> class Foo { method Str() { "bar" } }:⏏ say Foo.Str
expecting any of:
colon pair
lizmat m: class Foo { method Str() { "bar" } }; say Foo.Str
camelia bar
16:16 yosik joined
lizmat mcmillhj ^^ 16:16
in words: add a method Str
m: class Foo { method Str() { "bar" } }; say Foo
camelia (Foo)
lizmat m: class Foo { method gist() { "bar" } }; say Foo
camelia bar
lizmat m: class Foo { method gist() { "bar" } }; say Foo.Str
camelia Use of uninitialized value of type Foo in string context.
Methods .^name, .raku, .gist, or .say can be used to stringify it to something meaningful.

in block <unit> at <tmp> line 1
lizmat mcmillhj : and a method "gist" probably (one could refer to the other) 16:17
mcmillhj lizmat++ Thank you! 16:20
stevied OK, yeah. I'm on fez and p6c. So to drop p6c, I just remove from the path to the json from the manifest with a pull requests? 16:35
OK, yeah. I'm on fez and p6c. So to drop p6c, I just remove from the path to the json from the manifest with a pull request? 16:36
lizmat yeah, just make a PR to remove the module from the p6c ecosystem 16:45
stevied ok, thanks. 16:50
so basically, my big takeaway is fez is the way to go. 16:56
much easier to create a module with raku than perl, that's for sure
good job. no more dzil 🙂
lizmat :-) 17:02
stevied what's the easiest way to view a pod6 doc on my local drive as html? 17:29
ok found it, nvm 17:30

[Coke] the versions were intended to correspond with holiday names, so yes, C was Christmas; there was a running joke for years we'd release on Christmas (but what year, ha ha). And then we did it. 21:36
also, 6.d was the first time we shipped something that had two versions in it. 22:29
guifa Diwali for 6.d, so 6.e will be … Easter, I guess. Or Epiphany if we want to do it around the Christmas season. Or Earth day for April. 23:04
[Coke] I don't think it's mandatory to have it be during the time of year of the holiday, though that's nice.
guifa I mean, it's kind of a cool thing to do for releases. Find a few cool holidays starting with $next-letter, and then whichever one is the closest one around the time of the next release, make it the name. 23:09
thowe OK, now I'm pretty confused... So, I've been going through deFoy's "Learning Perl 6". And I found found some errors, but nothing show stopping. But now I am in the section on blocks and subroutines, and it says that blocks can't return values... And the example is shows for how subroutines CAN return values is the exact thing I have been doing with blocks... So i seems to me that blocks CAN return values. What am I missing? 23:53 23:56
Is that not returning the value that is being put? 23:57
